Notes

*To make an easy and delicious frosting, beat 1 box (16 ounces) confectioners sugar, 1/2 cup Country Crock Spread, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in large bowl with electric mixer until fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 3  Cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1  Tablespoon  baking powder
  • 2  Cups  granulated sugar
  • 1  Cup  butter, such as Country Crock® Spread
  • large eggs
  • 1  Cup  milk
  • 2  Teaspoons  vanilla extract
  • Shredded coconut and candy, for decorating cake (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans. Combine flour and baking powder in medium bowl; set aside.

Beat sugar with Country Crock® Spread in large bowl with electric mixer until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until blended. Combine milk and vanilla. Alternately beat in milk and flour mixtures until blended. Spread evenly into prepared pans.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes on wire rack; remove from pans and cool completely.

To assemble and decorate, leave 1 cake layer whole and place on large platter. Cut 2 opposite edges of the other layer into "ears." Cake remaining will be "bow tie." Arrange on platter. If desired, spread with frosting* and decorate with shredded coconut and/or candies.
